About Claire Sparling:

I have always felt a need to learn how things are put together. Throughout my life, I have followed this instinct by developing skills in everything relating to textiles. From a very young age, I have been sewing, knitting, spinning and weaving, never missing a chance to add new skills to my repertoire.

The most exciting expression of my art is pattern drafting. It is almost magical to see a set of two-dimensional shapes, stitched to one another in order to create a perfectly tailored garment. Over ten years of sewing experience have taught me how to manipulate pattern pieces in order to achieve just the right shape.

In “normal times” I have worked in wardrobe department at the prairie theatre Exchange, the Royal Winnipeg ballet, as well as Festival du Voyageur. For now I have been focusing on making masks.
